Can You Have More Than One Desire in Your Vision?

In a survey I conducted, a reader wrote:

"Dear Tony,

If you have been 'working' on a 'vision' or desire that you really want for a long time and it hasn't manifested exactly as you wanted it (in the ideal form... but it is vastly improved... but still not quite there yet), can you add another desire to the existing one and so act in the 'certain way' for both?!!

That is basically my question!!

Also, Bob Proctor, who has studied Wallace D. Wattles' work for over 25 years, says that you can do everything perfectly but if you don't "Let go and let God" you won't manifest what you want. What do you think?

Thank you for this opportunity to ask my question(s)!"

In reference to your first question:

"... can you add another desire to the existing one and so act in the 'certain way' for both?!!"

In his book The Science of Getting Rich, Mr. Wattles wrote:

"Your part is to intelligently formulate your desire for the things which make for a larger life, and to get these desires arranged into a coherent whole; and then to impress this Whole Desire upon the Formless Substance, which has the power and the will to bring you what you want."

He also wrote:

"The whole matter turns on receiving, once you have clearly formed your vision. When you have formed it, it is well to make an oral statement, addressing the Supreme in reverent prayer; and from that moment you must, in mind, receive what you ask for. Live in the new house; wear the fine clothes; ride in the automobile; go on the journey, and confidently plan for greater journeys. Think and speak of all the things you have asked for in terms of actual present ownership. Imagine an environment, and a financial condition exactly as you want them, and live all the time in that imaginary environment and financial condition."

So, based on those passages and my many years of creating and realizing visions and helping others to do so, my answer to your question is: yes, you can add another desire to your existing one and so act in the "certain way" on both if (big if here) they don't conflict with one another.

How do you tell if they conflict with one another?

Simple. Just ask yourself:

By having one can I have the other?

If your answer is yes, have at it!

As to your second question:

"... Bob Proctor... says that you can do everything perfectly but if you don't "Let go and let God" you won't manifest what you want. What do you think?"

First of all, let me say that, though I've read and/or listened to some of his stuff, I'm no expert on Bob Proctor's work and, quite frankly, I don't necessarily agree with every little thing he teaches, especially when it comes to Mr. Wattles' writings (on the other hand, I've pulled some real gems from his work).

That being said, if you're talking about "let go and let God" exactly as he explains the concept in Chapter 4 of his book You Were Born Rich, then I agree.

However, if you interpret "let go and let God" to mean, as many of the law-of-attraction folks out there that I've talked to do, that if you decide on something and believe that you'll have it that the official good fairy of the universe will come along and just plop it in your lap with absolutely no effort on your part, then I don't.

Again, I refer you to my Wallace D. Wattles Quick Start Guide and my Wallace D. Wattles Advanced Vision Guide (see links above).

Note 1: I'm not real fond of the use of the word manifest and its derivatives. It sounds way too hocus pocusey to me. I prefer to think of the process in terms of creation or realization.

Note 2: As a general rule, at least in the beginning, I suggest that you limit your vision statement to no more than three things. Chapter 5 ("The Anatomy of an Effective Vision Statement") of my Wallace D. Wattles Advanced Vision Guide has more on the subject (see links above).
